Show OverviewThe CI Podcast is back and we are starting this thing with Eric Ulbrich. Unlike a lot of guests I have on this show, I’ve actually worked with Eric before. He DP’d an amazing spot of Land O’ Lakes Butter that I was hired on as the MoVI Op. We actually get into what he looks for when hiring people and how I got to work with him. I can say first hand there’s a lot to learn from Eric. Not only for his camera and lighting talents, but how he runs a set and handles the pressure as a Local 600 DP. Hope you all enjoy this one and get as much out of it as I do.Links Mentioned:Eric’s WebsiteEric’s InstagramFlySpeed Thanks to Our Sponsors!Adorama LensProToGo Kessler Crane
